Czech Ban(?) on Caged Beds

See this article, which begins:

Controversial "caged beds" will be banned in some mental institutions in the Czech Republic starting next year, a government official said, but critics complain the measure is past due and woefully incomplete.
.
Use of the beds -- in which patients are confined behind locked, metal bars about 1.5 meters high -- has caused an outcry from international organisations and human rights groups.
